Who doesn't love a warm cuppa cocoa?!
And this recipe for
RED VELVET Hot Chocolate
with Cream Cheese Whipped Cream is TDF!

Yes, that's right, I said it...
Red Velvet Hot Chocolate
with Cream Cheese Whipped Cream

Can you stand it??? I can't. Anyhow...

When I saw this, I thought I'd died & gone to heaven! 
But the real question is...
Is it as good as it looks & 
the answer is... 


Red Velvet Hot Cocoa with Cream Cheese Whipped Cream
Yields: 4 servings
Original recipe here.

4 cups whole milk
1 dash water
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. red food coloring
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 - 4 tbsn. whipped cream cheese, room temperature

In a stand mixer, combine the heavy cream and sugar. Whip on medium speed with the whisk attachment for 2 - 3 minutes. Just before peaks form, add the cream cheese and whisk for another 2 minutes. Taste and add more cream cheese to taste. Be careful not to over whip though, or else you'll have butter! In a medium saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat. Add a splash of water and the chocolate chips, constantly stirring gently. When almost melted, add the red food coloring and stir. When the chocolate chips are thoroughly melted, pour the hot chocolate into mugs and top with the whipped cream.

Drink Up!
